We welcome the Commonwealth and WA State Government announcements of a National and WA State Energy Bill Offset for eligible residential and small business customers.
Funded by both the Commonwealth and WA State Governments, the offset payments will see residential customers receiving a minimum of $400 (paid over two instalments), and small business customers receiving a $650 payment (paid over two instalments).
We're working closely with both the WA State and Commonwealth Governments to support customers and implement these payments to assist the community with relief on their electricity bills and cost of living pressures.
As part of the National Energy Bill Relief Plan, all electricity offset payments to WA residential households and eligible small business customers will be automatically added to your next Synergy bill, and customers will NOT need to apply for these offset payments.
First payment added to eligible Synergy accounts – 8 July 2023
Second payment added – 2 December 2023
